16 Weird Habits That Weren’t So Odd Until Someone Asked

Eating kiwi fruit with its skin until i saw my friends eating without its skin then i turned on the incognito mode and searched “how to eat kiwi?”

If I bump an object into a wall or a table etc. I say “ouch” for that object. Not sure when I began doing it and obviously I know my toothbrush didn’t feel pain when I hit the faucet with it’s head but I can’t stop myself from saying “ouch” on the toothbrush’s behalf.

I sometimes use my tongue like a CD slot when eating chips

Didn’t even realise I was doing this until my friend suddenly burst out laughing while we were hanging out


Shared a hotel with a buddy during a trip and he told me I sleep like I’m embalmed… arms crossed, on my back, stiff as a board.

One of my favorite snacks growing up was cold canned green beans. My mom would just open the can and hand me a fork. I continued eating them like that until my sophomore year of university when my roommates just stared at me and pointed out how strange it was. I just thought that was the only way to eat green beans.

I consume everything quickly. I never really gave it any thought until I was having dinner with a friend and he told me I ate like someone that just got out of prison or boot camp.

One day I was taking a shower with my wife and I discover that she washes her underpants in the shower and uses the newly washed underpants as sponge to help to clean her body. I said “wtf?” and she said that her mom taught her to do that. And just like that I found that females on her family have this weird shower tradition.

Sometimes i like to hold my balls in my hand and think.

I s@#t nude. Also rarely use public toilets

…no i dont strip down in public. My siblings pointed it out when i was a teen. Also am male


I shake milk jugs before pouring a glass or over cereal. I was raised on a dairy farm so it was necessary with fresh milk. Was about 30 before someone asked why and I had to think for a minute before I realized I didn’t need to with store bought milk.

I talk to every animal I meet/see in French (my first language). I don’t know why I do this, but someone pointed it out when I met their new dog for the first time.

Whenever I touch or bump something (especially on accident) I feel like I have to repeat that action on the same spot on the other half of my body. Now it’s getting to the point where my brain just does it without consulting me first, and it’s gotten me some weird looks/comments

I pat my pillow to fall asleep.

I talk to myself, running conversations through my head. A few words will slip out every once in a while.

I tap the lid of the can three times before I open it when I drink coke/beer/etc.

I have no idea why I do it or even that I was doing it until I was at a ring dunk and someone handed me a beer and I tapped it and got asked about the habit. They assumed it was for luck so I went with that instead of me being a weirdo.

When i was a kid, i learned that if you say the ABC’s while you hold your oreo in milk, it’s the perfect softness/crispiness and doesn’t completely fall apart in the milk. To this day, i will whisper the abc’s under my breath. I did this once in front of my ex and he stopped he stared at me horrified and asked me why i was “chanting” at my oreos. I guess he couldn’t quite hear what i was whispering to my oreos and was freaked out that i had some evil oreo ritual or something.
